A few weeks ago, NFL superstar Aaron Rodgers participated in a two hour interview with Pete Holmes on his popular You Made It Weird podcast. In the interview, Rodgers opened up for the first time publicly about a UFO encounter he and his friends experienced in 2005.
He and some friends were enjoying a dinner together one night when they were taken aback by the sound of a loud siren. They went outside to investigate, and saw a “large orange, left-to-right moving object.” (source)
Rodgers went on to describe the encounter in detail:
Because of the overcast nature of the night and the snow, you couldn’t make out … it was behind the clouds we were seeing, but it was definitively large, moving from left to right. … It was me, Steve, and his brother that saw it.
And it goes out of sight and we look at each other and go, “What in the f— was that?”
Rodgers is referring to his former NFL teammate Steve Levy. After the incident, Rodgers and his friends said they heard the sound of military fighter jets flying above the clouds over their home. Now, that’s not a common sound in a residential area, and a military jet flying at low altitudes is most certainly uncommon, easily distinguishable from conventional aircraft.
Here is where the interesting comment comes in from Rodgers that demonstrates he is knowledgable about UFOs:
Now, if you know anything about UFO sightings or you’ve done research, you know that a lot of times two things are connected to UFO sightings,” said the two-time MVP and Super Bowl champion. “One is the presence of fighter jets. And two, there’s a lot of sightings around nuclear power plants. So to tie it all together, the alarm we heard from 30 miles out was a nuclear power plant that had an alarm that went off.
As Rodgers said, if you’ve done your research, you will see that the UFO phenomenon is global, and has included many military encounters. This type of thing has happened thousands of times, and it’s no secret, as dozens of governments and intelligence agencies worldwide have officially admitted to the existence of these objects — objects which consistently perform impossible maneuvers at notably high altitudes.
Peter Andrew Sturrock, a British scientist and an Emeritus Professor of Applied Physics at Stanford University, reminded us decades ago that we need to move forward with UFO research:
If it does indeed turn out that there is relevant physical evidence, if this evidence is carefully collected and analyzed, and if this analysis leads to the identification of several facts concerning the UFO phenomenon, then will be the time for scientists to step back and ask, What are these facts trying to tell us?
Some of this evidence comes in the form of critical weapons systems and electronics failure when these jets enter into the vicinity of a UFO. A great example of this comes from a study published in Scientific Exploration by Dr. Jacques Vallee, notable for co-developing the first computerized mapping of Mars for NASA, and for his work at SRI International on the network information center for ARPANET, a precursor to the modern Internet. His study is titled “Estimates of Optical Power Output in Six Cases Of Unexplained Aeriel Objects With Defined Luminosity Characteristics,” and it calls for “a broad re-examination of sighting files in an effort to apply this methodology to a larger sample and to better understand the luminosity characteristics of the reported objects.” (source)(source)
Another example would be a case in Iran, where the objects were tracked on air and ground radar (also common). Both planes experienced critical instrumentation and electronics go offline at a distance of twenty-five miles from the object. Here is the document that was released from the United States Defence Intelligence Agency describing the incident.
Here is a classic example that was released by the Royal Canadian Air Force.
The nuclear missile segment of Rodgers’ encounter is also very interesting.
Many people who are aware of the UFO phenomenon do not know that UFOs have been visiting and interacting with nuclear missile sites across the globe for decades. This is a well documented fact, and the first recorded instance of this happening dates all the way back to December of 1948:
Significantly, the UFO activity occasionally transcends mere surveillance and involves direct and unambiguous interference with our strategic weapons systems. Numerous cases include reports of mysterious malfunctions of large numbers of nuclear missiles just as one or more UFOs hovered nearby.
(Declassified Soviet Ministry of Defense documents confirm that such incidents also occurred in the former USSR.)
The above quote is from UFO researcher Robert Hastings, who has been researching the UFO phenomenon and its relation to nuclear missile sites for a a long time. Here is a clip of Robert speaking at the National Press Club in 2010.
For more detail on specific UFO encounters and specific nuclear missile facilities, like the encounter at Minot Air Force base, or the Maelstrom Air Force base incident, you can read this article that goes more in-depth on the subject, or view this video of former military personnel speaking about their experiences at the National Press Club.
Why We Must Be Cautious Of What Is Said About UFOs From Mainstream Media/Government
UFOs have always been a popular discussion within the mainstream, but only within the past couple of years have government officials who are currently still active in politics opened up about the topic in a more serious manner. This is perhaps most notably evinced by statements made byJohn Podesta, who is currently the head of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign (who, by the way, recently admitted to the idea that we may have been visited already), and former councillor to Barack Obama.
I’m skeptical about many things, including the notion that government always knows best, and that the people can’t be trusted with the truth. The time to pull the curtain back on this subject is long overdue. We have statements from the most credible sources – those in a position to know – about a fascinating phenomenon, the nature of which is yet to be determined.
– (taken from Leslie Kean’s 2010 New York Times bestseller, UFOs: Generals, Pilots, And Government Officials Go On The Record, in which Podesta wrote the forward)
Almost a decade prior to this, he made an appearance on live television (at the National Press Club) arguing the following:
I think it’s time to open the books on questions that have remained in the dark, on the question of government investigations of UFOs; it’s time to find out what the truth really is that’s out there. We ought to do it really because it’s right, we ought to do it because the American people quite frankly can handle the truth, and we ought to do it because it’s the law. (source)
When the time does come for an ‘official announcement’ regarding intelligent extraterrestrial life currently visiting or having visited this planet to be made, we must listen with caution. As we’ve seen with various other topics, like the ‘war on terror’ or the ‘war on drugs,’ mainstream media and government explanations have been shown to be false and manipulative. Obviously terrorism, war, UFOs, and more are real things, but the stories being told about them by corporate media are rarely trustworthy.
For years we’ve been relying on our televisions, on our corporations, and on our governments to explain what is happening in our world, and for years they’ve been deceiving us. This isn’t a secret. Ever since the CIA’s operation ‘Mockingbird’ was launched, a program designed to infiltrate and influence mainstream media, a number of popular and award winning journalist have come forward and flat out said that most news is largely influenced by big corporations, intelligence agencies, politics, and ultimately, money. Here are three great examples.
